November 12, 2019 - This year marks the 120th anniversary of the Fiat brand, and to mark the occasion, Fiat announced the new 2019 Fiat 500X 120th Anniversary Edition, a custom-appearance package that adds a black-painted accent-color roof, creating a two-tone exterior paint scheme.
Additional features on the special-edition model include unique 18-inch black-finish wheels, LED headlamps, 120th anniversary exterior badging, and black body-side moldings and mirror caps. Inside, the 500X 120th Anniversary Edition features a black-painted instrument panel.
“With standard intelligent all-wheel drive and an all-new 1.3-liter turbocharged engine that generates best-in-class torque, our Italian-designed Fiat 500X is built to turn heads in one of the fastest growing segments in the industry,” Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat–North America, said. “This special-edition Fiat 500X offers customers a sleek, new customization option.”
Designed and manufactured in Italy, the new 2019 Fiat 500X features an all-new, standard-equipped 1.3-liter turbocharged engine with the latest iteration of the FCA exclusive MultiAir (called MultiAir III) valve-actuation technology, engine stop-start (ESS) technology and best-in-class torque.
Also standard are a nine-speed automatic transmission and an intelligent all-wheel-drive system that utilizes a disconnecting rear axle by reducing parasitic loss when all-wheel drive is not needed. This contributes to improved fuel economy of up to 3 miles per gallon compared with the outgoing engine.
In addition to new front and rear fascia designs, the new 2019 Fiat 500X crossover offers LED headlamps (included with the 120th Anniversary Edition), fog lamps and nearly 70 safety and security features that now include adaptive cruise control and Front Park Assist.
The Fiat 500X 120th Anniversary Edition is available in four exterior paint colors: Grigio Argento (Gray Metallic), Milano (Ivory Tri-coat), Bianco Gelato (White Clear Coat) and Nero Cinema (Black Clear Coat).
The 120th Anniversary Edition package is available for $995 on the 500X Pop model, which starts at $24,740 U.S. manufacturers suggested retail price, excluding destination charge.
The Fiat 500X 120th Anniversary Edition will be available in the fourth quarter in Fiat studios and select Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, Ram, Fiat stores.
